after 4 minutes in the oven these absolutely melted everywhere. I caught the goo before it attacked my oven bottom, but these little cookies, made exactly as specified, turned into a gooey, melty mess. I turned the oven down to 325 and let them cook another 6 minutes. The parts that didn't burn tasted pretty good, but...how are these cookies? Is the butter to flour ratio correct? They actually left small pools of butter behind on the tray! I only cooked half so far, tomorrow I will let the dough thaw completely and add more flour, maybe these can yet be saved! They sound sooo good!!!! Please, please check the recipe. :)
